Samsung Galaxy S5 reported to come with 64-bit support and 14nm Exynos 6 processor (to be water and dust resistant as well)

Update: Korean Media ET News is reporting that the upcoming Galaxy S5 will be water and dust resistant, unlike the Galaxy S4 Active which is the rugged version of original Galaxy S4, with downgraded specs. This is similar to Sony's strategy of releasing it's flagship devices water and dust resistant, like the Xperia Z and Xperia Z1.

Earlier (16th Oct): According to Korean media DDaily, Samsung's next flagship smartphone will feature a powerful processor. As per their report, Samsung has ditched the 20nm architecture work and is currently working on a 14nm chip. This next generation processor from Samsung is said to feature ARM's big.LITTLE octa-core configuration with Cortex-A53/A57 cores  that can be operational simultaneously, with almost halved power consumption compared to the Exynos 5420 chip.


According to their report, Samsung Galaxy S5 will be the first device to feature this octa-core Exynos 6 processor with 14nm architecture and 64-bit support. Currently, Samsung is using a 28nm chip in it's flagship devices. 

As per previous reports, Samsung will announce the Galaxy S5 in January.

There is no way to confirm this news, so it's better to take it with a pinch of salt, until and unless any credible source leaks the same details.
